Billings Blood Supply Low

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS -

The United Blood Service in Billings does not issue emergency blood appeals often. But September 30th, they did just that, but still need blood.

Representatives say they usually see a low supply of blood heading into the holiday season; which doesn't fair well since the recent appeal did not turn out many donors.

"At the time we sent the appeal out, we were about seven hundred units behind. And since that time, we did see donors come in; however, not the number we would normally see when we go on an appeal. So as of today, we are still about six hundred units behind," says United Blood Services Regional Donor Recruitment Director, Lesli Asay.

Asay says they are specifically low on all Type O negative, Type A negative and Type B negative blood types.
